T his book has touched the hearts of many with divergent backgrounds from around the world and across social, political, religious and economic backgrounds. It is a tribute to those portrayed here, both the refugees at Kakuma Camp and the indigenous peoples of Turkana. FROM THE DUST JACKET Daniel’s photographs bring awareness to an enormous suffering, sustained in dignity by these amazing people. I pray his passion influences a new generation to demand social and political change. OLIVER STONE is an Academy Award-winning filmmaker who has garnered critical acclaim for his wide-ranging films of social commentary. He first met Dan in August 2000 at Kakuma Refugee Camp. From a personal level, I am drawn to Danny’s work as our family lived in Kenya while I was a young girl and its people hold a special place in my heart. Danny’s photographs stand alone, however, and tell an important story. His powerful images bridge us as humans. The depth of the pictures pushes us beyond the expected differences and transports us to the unexpected—-to our very humanness. ANN BANCROFT is a polar explorer, Bancroft-Arneson Expedition - Antarctica, American Women’s Expedition to Antarctica and Steger International Expedition to the North Pole—the first woman in history to cross the ice to the North and South Poles. The Ann Bancroft Foundation works to help girls and women realize their highest dreams and potential.

With Foreword by
and Introduction by
United Nations Peacekeeping Operations O ne of the oldest civilizations on Earth, the indigenous peoples of Turkana have lived isolated in Kenya’s remote northwest for thousands of years. Existing in the tormented, civil war-torn heart of the continent, their way of life is now threatened by the added pressure of Kakuma Refugee Camp. Families from Sudan and East Africa, fleeing violence in their homelands, have sought sanctuary here since 1992. The dueling struggles for the sparse resources of this unforgiving region touched author and photographer Daniel Cheng Yang. With passion, dedication and compassion, he conveys the harsh reality of refugee life in his imagery—the plight of the over 40 million refugees in the world today—and the conflict between ancient traditional and contemporary civilizations. A powerful, moving documentary of forgotten peoples, Daniel’s work has gained international attention for its depth of human expression and been shown in Paris at the Louvre, as well as in New York and Yokohama. At the author’s request, a portion of book proceeds will go to fund food and supplies for the more than 81,000 refugees at Kakuma.

PEOPLE/WOMEN/INDIGENOUS PEOPLES Title: Highway to Hidden Valleys
Year: 1992
Produced by: Paul Cleary
Production Company: Farthes North Productions
Duration: 52’ Country: Pakistan Language: English Type/Format: U- matic /VHS
When China and Pakistan cemented their strategic alliance in the early 1970s by building the Karakoram Highway , centuries of isolation in the valleys of northern Pakistan were shattered. Ruled for decades by the feudal Mirs or princes, the people had always survived by a precarious agricultural system. But with the abolition of the Mirs ’ powers in 1972, this fragile infrastructure began to disintegrate. The Aga Khan Rural Support Programme , started in 1983, has helped to establish over 2000 village organisations to oversee new projects from irrigation to food preservation and women’s education. But, as Paul Cleary’s exquisitely shot film makes clear, progress has also brought tension. The road is exacting demands from the people of

This paper gave an example of a successful participatory extension programme, part of the Turkana Rural Development Programme funded by NORAD, in which local people and the Forestry Department of Kenya combined their knowledge and ideas during a series of workshops to improve local management of trees. The author stressed the importance of recognising the distinctive ecology of drylands, building on indigenous practices and giving projects the foundations to perpetuate themselves once funding expires.

As photography has influenced the development of performance art, performance and performative activities have pushed the boundaries of photography. Staged photographs date to the very beginnings of photography, and the use of photographs to communicate and record performance art has been consistent with the development of performance as a medium.
This exhibition, organized by Alison Gerber, is made up of work which acknowledges the close relationship between photography and performance and which attempts to question and enlarge boundaries of both. The artists in the exhibition use photography, its history, and its uses as subject matter for their work. Artists in the exhibition have varying views of the ideal audience and of the potential of the performative. Each uses time-based actions to explore and discuss the medium of photography and, in doing so, has the potential to change our view of the medium.

Kofi Akosah-Sarpong
Ottawa, Canada Expo Times Africa Editor Kofi Akosah-Sarpong, who was recently named Fellow of the Institute of African Renaissance, University Of Botswana, writes from Ottawa, Canada, in this soul-searching essay how the African culture was wrongly branded "primitive" and "backward", and how it can rather be used in the socio-political, economic and agricultural development of the continent in light of the bubbling African Renaissance process. Over four hundred years ago, the slave trade and colonialism crashed into Africa and destroyed the cultural growth of that continent. The slave trade, with its raids and all that, created a fatalistic culture and mass movements, which strained and stressed, disturbed Africa's inner cultural growth, especially its moral universe. Then came colonialism, which imposed a different cultural universe with its own definition of God, progress, and the rule of law. This suppressed many a healthy African value, putting Africa in a confused state of animation. African culture was wrongly branded "primitive" and "backward." Earlier, 1,600 years ago at the northeastern tip of Africa, in Egypt, the great Alexandria library was razed down, seeing the destruction of African knowledge. Said Nigeria's Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, in February this year at a major conference organized by the United Nations Environment Programme, UNEP, on indigenous culture and progress, "Culture is the primary source of knowledge, science the understanding of nature begins with local culture."

    The Cultural Survival Studies in Ethnicity and Change series, edited by David Maybury-Lewis and Theodore MacDonald, Jr. of Cultural Survival, Inc., Harvard University, sharply focuses on key issues affecting indigenous and ethnic groups worldwide. Concise and accessible, this series of ethnographies builds on introductory material by going further in-depth and allowing students to explore, virtually first-hand, a particular issue and its impact on a culture.
    Ethnicity and Culture Amidst New "Neighbors": The Runa of Ecuador's Amazon Region Theodore Macdonald Jr., Harvard University This new ethnography chronicles the recent history of the Runa, a Quichua-speaking Indian population in Ecuador's amazon region. The author has been following the Runa's adaptation to continuous changes around and amongst them since 1974. When Macdonald first met the Runa they were practicing swidden horticulture, hunting, fishing, and living their created culture while also reacting to external pressures imposed on them by newly arrived colonists and changing national legislation. The book follows the development of the Runa from a passive accommodating society to an indigenous ethnic federation. ©1999 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 paperbound 176 pp ISBN: 0-205-19821-X

    To Let Them Be Or Not To Let Them Be
    As New Research Warns of the Threat to Many of the World's Ancient Indigenous Cultures and their Associated Cultural, Lingual and Bio-Diversity, EuropaWorld asks 'Can they be Preserved?'
    We Europeans no longer attack ethnic civilisations at the point of a sword, practising massacre and genocide in the name of Christianity or colonisation. We no longer plunder or destroy art treasures belonging to so-called 'uncivilised' people, practising a form of artistic vandalism simply because we cannot be bothered to appreciate or to understand.
    Nevertheless we continue to oppress divergence. Through majority languages such as English or Spanish, through the ubiquitous power of radio and television, air travel, the invasion of habitat, through global culture we are in the process of destroying ancient ways of life as efficienly and perhaps even more effectively than our more brutal ancestors.The question arises are we right to do so?
    A report recently published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) highlights the extent of this destruction by analysing the fate of the world's minority languages. According to UNEP, there are between 5,000 and 7,000 languages spoken in the world today - the vast majority indigenous tongues. Approximately 2,500, they believe, are on the brink of extinction.
